  1. Thanks so much for the feedback! Mucho kudos to sas!! The scan ended, over 123 things found! Before I had a chance to see your reply, I took a chance and moved it with the cursor, so you are correct, it can be moved at least. The more I think about it, the more I think it might have been a genuine avg notice, but you start to get paranoid when something takes over your computer! When I restarted, the avg notice didn't come up, so I'm guessing sas took care of it, whether it was real or not. I executed the removal, everything seems great! For the first time in months,I'm not seeing antimalwaredoctor flashing on my screen! Amen to that! I'm thinking I should get rid of the old avg and antimalewarebytes (it took this over at one point!)and zone alarm and install fresh stuff, rather than just updating the versions I have. Any other steps I should be taking? Am I being paranoid or is this a good idea? Any and all advice much appreciated!
  2. I'm in the process of running sas portable in regular mode (had trouble getting into safe mode last time, so I didn't even try it) on my dell xp laptop which was infected with antimalwaredoctor. The process started, then this 'resident shield alert' popped up in front of the screen obscuring the sas screen, so I can't tell what it is doing! resident shield has listed 4 trojan horse generic 18c things, but from what I can find on the internet, this is a phony virus detector. Someone said not to touch it in any way, so I'm afraid to even move it with the cursor to see if sas is doing anything. Ok, I just noticed that sas is still running, I see the last 2 digits of the clock on the lower right just peeking out from behind the resident shield thing. Is it safe to 'x' resident shield out or move it out of the way with the cursor? At some point sas is going to stop, and I don't know what to do to activate it and get rid of all the nasties. Help!
  3. Hi. I contracted antimalwaredoctor virus a few weeks ago. I had malwarebytes installed at the time, as well as a few other things, but somehow it got through. Tried to get rid of it with malwarebytes, it basically took the program over and was telling me to delete malwarebytes, that it was spyware. I've kept it shut down for the past 3 weeks while I tried to figure out how to deal with it, but I think I'm going blind using this 10" netbook:-) I got help at the malwarebytes forum, but the process they gave me was so complicated that I couldn't figure out how to do it. So now it seems as if a number of people have been successful with sas, so I thought I'd give it a try. I installed it on my other computer (a netbook), with the intention of putting it on a usb drive and trying to introduce it to the infected computer that way.I did a quick scan on my other computer (NETBOOK), then logged off. When I went back live, I had 26 icons on my desktop for sas! I expected one? Did I do something wrong putting it on the desktop? I guess I can put them all together somewhere, I was just surprised to see this. Secondly, exactly how do I introduce it to my infected computer? Do I just copy and paste the icon from my desktop on the netbook to the drive, put the usb drive in the infected computer and copy and paste it from the drive to the desktop, then double click on it and let it do its thing?? Will that work? I guess the icon that says 'superantis...free edition' is the only one I would copy? I want to be sure I do it right the first time, this virus doesn't seem to give you a second chance! Please be specific and keep it simple, I'm a tech idiot. Any help greatly appreciated.
